German Entrepreneurship on Speed

Sunday, March 15
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon A
500 E 4th St


Germany is an international melting pot for startups, the creative scene, investors and innovation. Top notch engineering and intellectual works reach new levels. We have learned from the US and Asia, but kept our sense for ambition, sustainability, cultural values and quality. Let’s discuss the booming future of German entrepreneurship, digital culture, connections to the US, and German beer of course.

This panel is part of the German Startup Engine at SXSW Startup Village. This panel session will be followed by two pitch sessions from German startups in the e-commerce and travel/mobility space. The German Startup Engine program will be complimented by further events at the German Haus on Rainey Street. Visit german-haus.biz or the SXSW schedule for more information.

Presented by: Bavaria, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Berlin, Hamburg & North Rhine-Westphalia.
